The Pears Maudsley Centre received ‘Highly Commended’ in the ‘Outside Spaces’ category at the Design in Mental Health 2022 Awards last night.
The Centre is specifically designed to help young people manage anxiety and to create the right atmosphere for those with autism, ADHD and other conditions. It is a modern, community-minded space, totally different from traditional mental health clinics and its design has had input from young patients from the start.
The building will have landscaped outdoor terraces with extensive planting on each of the building’s eight floors — capped by a roof terrace. It is hoped this will provide the calming, relaxing spaces that is sometimes difficult to achieve in a traditional inner-city hospital building.
